The novel, published in September, tells the in-depth story of one couple's 24-year marriage from both partners' perspectives.

“Never, even in my most grandiose dreams, did I think the president would read my book, let alone like it," Groff told BuzzFeed. "I wish he could run for a third term.”

When the First Lady was also asked about her favorite book from 2015, she said it was Elizabeth Alexander's memoir, The Light of the World.
